The Lady Warriors softball team is headed back to the TAPPS 4A Division III Final Four for the second straight year thanks to a 13-1 win over Bay Area Christian in the regionals. CCS was led by two freshmen, Megan Smith and Kennedy Schwartz, who each went 3-for-3 at the plate. Anna Fernandez, another freshman and junior Maura Stricklin delivered two hits each to help power the Warriors' 15-hit batting barrage.
Lucy Davis pitched a complete game, giving up just two hits on the day. Only one Bronco runner advanced past second base as the Warriors defense backed up Davis with outstanding play in the field. Shortstop Sarah Olenick made the play of the day, diving to stop a hard grounder up the middle and slinging the ball to first just in time for the final out of the game, bringing the CCS faithful to their feet in celebration. CCS is now 25-4.
